Known for its pleasant weather and stunning views of Mount Diablo.

Welcome to San Ramon

A modern city with an extensive history and excellent schools
 
The city of San Ramon was incorporated in 1983, but its history goes deeper than that. Once inhabited by the Seunen Native Americans, the land later served as grazing land for Mission San Jose. The community was named after Ramon, a Native American vaquero, or cowboy, who served as a caretaker for the mission's sheep.
 
Known for its pleasant weather and stunning views of Mount Diablo, today, San Ramon is home to roughly 76,000 residents who mostly own their own homes. There are many separate neighborhood communities within city limits, including Dougherty Hills, with mostly newer residences. Similar to Twin Creeks and Southern San Ramon, this is a family-oriented neighborhood. The most luxurious neighborhoods are those of Norris Canyon Estates and Roubion, located in secluded wooded settings. Most homes here are minimally 3,500 square feet or larger and include a variety of amenities.

To have a look at the San Ramon of yesteryear, visit Forest Home Farms Historic Park on San Ramon Valley Boulevard. Bequeathed by Ruth Quayle Boone in memory of her late husband, Travis Moore Booth, the 16-acre site contains the family's 22-room Dutch colonial home along with a variety of outbuildings that represent the family's agricultural roots and activities. Also located on the property is the Glass House Museum, one of the first representatives of Italianate architecture in the area, introduced in the mid-1860s. Built by David Glass in the late 1870s, the Glass House remains an important part of the San Ramon community. Before you leave, be sure to stop into the Tractor House which continues to house one of the largest collections of antique tractors in the state.
